About

Her exhibition will consist of an enormous 18ft pod sculpture, changing colour in co-ordination with the constellations moving overhead, four video pieces documenting the creation of, over twelve years, her Beginning of the End series, which will be on display in three suspended 6ft circular photomontages. This series documents Mori's explorations in locations as diverse as Teotihuacán, Times Square, Shibuya, Giza, Docklands, Brasilia - amongst many others. In each monumental vista Mori is photographed enclosed within a transparent horizontal pod, lying serenely, as much an entity unto herself as protected and separate from her surrounds. A monograph of her work is also to be published for the exhibition.

Additionally, from the 11 - 15 October, from sunrise to sunset (altering slightly each day) Taiwanese American artist, Lee Mingwei, will be creating Picasso's Guernica in a Buddhist sand painting technique. Once created, the piece will gradually be destroyed - in keeping with Picasso's theme - by those who come to visit the gallery and to see the piece. It will then be recreated the following sunrise for its eventual destruction by sunset.
